The Odd Couple Out for a Burger … Obama & Biden, Two Average Joes Order a Burger … President Obama, Do you have any Grey Poupon?


Why do politicians try to act as if they are like “We the People” when they ALL have lost touch with who and what we are. They are all out of touch and look foolish when they pretend to be “common” folk.

And the late night comedy shows like The Tonight Show, David Letterman and SNL say there is no Obama fodder for their monologues. Really? Are you telling me that Jay Leno and company could not fire up the old Grey Poupon commercials with Obama and Biden in a limo?

Yesterday, President Obama and VP Biden, just two ordinary Joes (watch the video), walk into Ray’s Hell Burger and order them self up some grub.

Because everyone orders a cheeseburger with spicy Dijon mustard and no ketchup. Excuse me Mr. President, do you have any Grey Poupon.

However, it appears the new slogan with MSNBC is not “Where’s the Beef” but instead “Where’s the Mustard.”

UPDATE I: DIJONGATE … According to Legal Insurrection, MSNBC has conveniently edited the video of Obama ordering his hamburger with Dijon spicy mustard. Check out the video. I guess we know know why the White House loves MSNBC. I guess the reference to “grey poupon” spicy Dijon mustard might promote the image of an elitist and MSNBC certainly could not allow that to occur.

      So which is it Red?

      First you complain because you think the First Lady should attend a fund raiser for the homeless, looking like an average ‘Joe’…

      Then, when the President and Vice President order hamburgers, like most average ‘Joe’s do; you want to call them out for minimizing their means. Personally, I don’t care if he wants ketchup and mayo on his burger because, frankly, it doesn’t make the man. Besides, if we wanted an average ‘Joe’ we would have voted for the plumber.


    2. HOPE on May 6th, 2009 10:45 am

      Frankly, I’m more interested in knowing what was going on in Governor Palin’s mansion to come up with an illegitimate child that was a blessing and then a curse… Now, that’s a story we could all sink our teeth into.

    3. caesu on May 6th, 2009 10:48 am

      so he is out of touch now because he ordered spicy mustard with his burger???
      and all the wingnut blogs copy-paste it immediately from eachother.

      Dijongate… LOL

    4. nurturer on May 6th, 2009 11:02 am

      I saw him mumble through his hamburger order, the whole time wishing he had his teleprompter handy.

    5. SUPER DAVE on May 6th, 2009 11:33 am

      the plumber would have been a better choice. it’s ok because everyone knows that the democrats fear Sarah Palin so that they peed their pants when she was selected.

    6. dave on May 6th, 2009 12:17 pm

      Hey Red I see you got these lowlife lefties undies all up in knots again. They just don’t get it. Poor brainless slobs. LOL

    7. Michelle Smith on May 6th, 2009 12:34 pm


      It wasn’t a fund raiser, she was working at the food bank and no, she should not have worn $500 shoes to do charity work. It’s classless. As usual you are missing the point of the post. Michelle Obama is wearing $500 shoes to give out food at the food bank and Obama & Biden are out buying burgers and looking like fools.

    8. nurturer on May 6th, 2009 1:12 pm

      Hope is a 3 letter word.

    9. Wolf on May 6th, 2009 1:14 pm

      Poor right wingers got nothing else to mumble about. That’s sad they have to stoop so low….but when you’re a republican right now…what else do you have?

    10. Susan on May 6th, 2009 1:20 pm

      Please pass the grey poupon…lol. What is up with these two clowns, Obama and Biden? Is plain old mustard not good enough for ‘em? How UNAMERICAN is that?

      Some posters here need to remember “whose house they are in”.

    11. HOPE on May 6th, 2009 2:23 pm

      Nurturer is a four letter word that used to think he was a hero… now he’s a blogger that has nothing better to do than trash his own country. Next thing you know, he’ll be telling us to boycott America! Besides, everyone knows which gender are the whores and the rapists and the mass murderers… Me? I prefer change.


      Susan: This is a blog, nothing more nothing less. Besides, I think Red gets a kick out of it… remember it wasn’t me that he reprimanded!

      Surely, he’s not serious!


    12. HOPE on May 6th, 2009 2:25 pm


      Any time the First Lady helps out in a food drive… it’s a fund raiser!

    13. nurturer on May 6th, 2009 3:04 pm

      #11 – Hope, when have ever I trashed America? One example will do.

      One more question. Whatever it is you’re smoking, can you pass it around?

    14. Wolf on May 6th, 2009 3:47 pm

      Susan…spare us your “How UNAMERICAN is that?”B.S
      As I recall Chinese food is not “American”..neither is Italian…and I’m betting you’ve eaten both of them!
      So what if he wanted “French Fries” you going to complain about that too?
      The rights are losing their can see the saliva dripping from their lips as they pray this admin fails….

      David Hasslehoff even showed up!

      Ranch Burger, hold the pickle, tossed on the floor, just like he likes it.

      Don’t hoffle the hass! hic

    16. Susan on May 6th, 2009 4:07 pm

      Hope – you are a complete fool and total idiot! Red did not EXCLUDE you from the tongue lashing or as you put it “reprimand”. He included EVERYONE. What makes you think you are so special that you shouldn’t or do not have to abide by Red’s wishes? You aren’t special, with the exception of being “special ed”, so get over yourself!

    17. HOPE on May 6th, 2009 4:37 pm

      Hey Red:

      Found this to be interesting and right in line with what I told you about Aruba a couple years ago as confirmed by the Catholic Church:

      Smiles to you,




      What, exactly, do you do other than complain constantly? You think it’s interesting to all those thousands of visitors to listen to you bitch about everything? I didn’t do anything wrong to be reprimanded for and if anyone is special ed material, it’s you.

    18. Jason on May 6th, 2009 4:39 pm

      seriously….he asked for spicy mustard?What an elitist snob.Real americans eat hamburgers with cheese bacon and ketchup.Maybe onions, but spicy mustard?I am ashamed of our President.What was he thinking?Yet another Obama-gaffe.

    19. HOPE on May 6th, 2009 4:56 pm

      By the way Susan, if you think you’re popular because you say, “Yes, Sir” to everything that Red writes, you’re crazy. He enjoys reading other people’s opinions and doesn’t expect his news media to be used as a chat room. This site is about opinions, civil discussion and information gathering.

      What have you done lately?



      Gee… I only get one?


      But, I have a question for you…

      As a monitor, aren’t you supposed to try to subdue the personal attacks or are you supposed to start them? I guess you know what that means, you’ve sunk to the level of my female counterparts!

      Sorry you can’t keep up with the special ed student…. but, please, at least try to act like you know what’s going on.


    20. Jack Hammer on May 6th, 2009 4:57 pm

      I like Mayo on my burgers. Write an article about me.

    21. caesu on May 6th, 2009 5:24 pm


      wanting mustard on your burger is UNAMERICAN now!?!

      oh, Dijon mustard.
      named after a French city. i get it now… :)

      thanks, i had my comic relief for today.
      can’t wait for tomorrow’s blog.
      but it’s hard to beat this one.

      Chuck Norris invented hamburger when he threw a cow through a chain link fence.

      In reality it is a test. Can Joe open his mouth and put the food into it or does he have to pull his foot out first..JS

    24. Susan on May 6th, 2009 6:51 pm

      Hopeless – Posting here has nothing to do with one’s popularity. I’m not here to win anyone over to my side or to win a popularity contest.

      You’ve offered NOTHING here, but what can we possibly expect from a RETARD :-) Your continued ATTACKS are being so noted…

    25. Carpe on May 6th, 2009 7:02 pm

      That Grey Poupon is spicy too. Make ya go hang your tongue in the sink!

      It seems strange to me that Scared Monkeys think it editorially fits into their website to produce these Obama bashing articles. What does right-wing politics have to do with the rest of the site? How’s this working for you Scared Monkeys?

    30. Carpe on May 7th, 2009 1:10 am


      Seriously, we need to help this brotha. It is

      Thanks YoYo I needed that

      #32-Yoyo—No…but b/c he’s postponed his surgery ntil Post-Season– the rumour is that Mgmt. may have been plotting to give him 10-15 min. of play time if Celt’s proceed even further in Playoffs…Wishful thinking…It’s been confirmed by Doc Rivers & KG’s Dr’s,,,he is out till end of entire season.


    36. Michelle Smith on May 7th, 2009 8:34 pm

      How many burger joints do you know of that serve Grey Poupon? Couldn’t he just get regular mustard on his hamburger?

    37. on May 7th, 2009 9:24 pm

      Golly Hope – You want to over look Joe and O going out for a burger for a photo op to act like regular people but you want to pry into the life of a 17 teenager who made a mistake and then had her boyfriend decided he’d like 15 minutes of fame with a vengeance. BTW, she did not say her baby was a curse; she merely warned teenagers that having a baby at that age is not a bed of roses and something they should try very hard to avoid.

      Why is it O bashing to tell the truth? I remember a year ago when it was all the rage to go after a President merely for the way he pronounced a word!

      You really seem to miss the basis of the story. Here is America, cutting back, gutting expenses, clipping coupons and forgoing needed prescriptions and then there is the Government – running out for fancy burgers, getting pay raises and raises to run their offices, spending money like to grows on trees and talking to us about how we all must suffer and take some of the jolt as they try to demonize secured creditors for standing for their legal rights in bankruptcy of a company the government insisted on giving billions of taxpayer dollars.

      You miss the contradiction because you’ve been so busy drinking the kool-aid. Get a mind and think for yourself.

    38. HOPE on May 8th, 2009 12:39 am

      Well, Gollllly, Miss Katablog…

      Wouldn’t you rather I get a mind to think just like you?

    39. St Stephen on May 8th, 2009 6:44 am

      My personal opinion is that I myself prefer Gulden’s spicy brown mustard.

    40. Scott on May 8th, 2009 7:54 am

      HOPE is a hater….

      Let’s see….who is more qualified to talk about the dangers of drugs? A person who studied it or a person who lived it and is in recovery and had life experiences to tell because of it? The latter and yet they go around talking to students about it.

      Who is more qualified to talk about the addictiveness of gambling? A person who studied it or a person who is a recovering gambler who had life experiences about it? The latter and yet they go around talking to students.

      Who is more qualified to talk about the riggers and trails of teen pregnancy? Someone who studied or someone who is actually living it? Who would resonate with students more? A 30something or a 17 year old? Ah, the latter, BUT because it is Sarah Palin’s daughter and the MSM hates Sarah Palin, they and loser hypocritial liberals bash her and tell her she shouldn’t be doing it.

      It’s amazing because if it were a liberals daughter who had a teen pregnant you wouldn’t hear a peep about from them…PERIOD!

    41. yoyo muffintop on May 8th, 2009 10:06 am

      #40 – I would agree with you but that is the exact opposite of what Palin is doing. All we’re hearing from the Palins’ is that while this is “less than ideal”, Bristol is doing great. She’s happy, successful, an ideal mother, has plenty of time on her hands to finish high school and go to college. That’s what takes away from her message.

      If she were telling stories about how hard it is to leave school, and what a challenge it will be to attend college or hold down a job – it would show that having a child requires sacrifice. If she said that she misses her friends and hated missing prom and wants to wander around the mall drinking a soda etc etc – it would speak in a teen’s language.

      Right now, the message that she’s sending is that it’s great to be a teen mom.

      That’s the problem with Bristol’s message and it’s a wrong message, imo.

      The Left is just keeping this ‘Mustard story’ alive, the Right had a chuckle and moved on. There are many much more important things to criticize this administration about. The Left doesn’t want people focusing on the big stuff, because that’s where it’s most dangerous to them. The Truth will bring them down, God willing.
      absurd thought -
      God of the Universe says

      don’t protest tax increases

      or support states’ rights

    46. newenglander on May 10th, 2009 10:26 am

      Grey Poupon Dijon mustard is made in the US by Kraftfoods since 1946. And, it’s kosher. You can’t even buy it in France. Rightwingers are such idiots. The Republican Party continues to implode. Keep it up and there won’t be another Republican President in our lifetime, if every.

    47. Susan on May 10th, 2009 12:30 pm

      #44 – Speak for yourself, Hopeless :-)

    48. Scott on May 12th, 2009 7:59 am

      She is NOT speaking of how great it is to be a teen mom. I’ve heard what she is talking about. Why does the left twist everything espeically in regards to Palin.

      DOPE – i bet you feel all big and bad sitting behind your twinkies and computer bashing a teen pregnancy. I could only imagine the hell your daughter would face if she made a mistake and got pregnant! Why do you bury your head and think that 17 year olds are not having sex? Yet you losers want doctors to kill 9 month old children while still in the womb!?!

      BTW, Bristol’s daugther is NOT illegitmate…she has a father. Now, you might be an illegitmate b*tch!
